Happy 4th of July 2017, DealDashers!


The 4th of July is upon us! Tomorrow is a day of celebration on DealDash!

DealDash loves holidays, you can plainly tell that by the sales that have been run during past holidays such as .12 bids, free auctions, and 50 or 100 auctions starting at once. I can’t guarantee what sort of fun surprises and sales that DealDash has in store for you tomorrow, but you had better check it out in the morning and find out!

Holidays Are a Great time to Bid

You may or may not have noticed, but holidays are usually a spectacular time to bid (and win!) on DealDash. Why is this? This is because typically on holidays most people are out doing activities with their family and friends. If you’re able to spare an hour here and there to check in on what’s happening on DealDash, then you will be rewarded with easier to win auctions, because there is less competition. Just think, when other people are out on the deck just chatting you could be inside in the air conditioning winning some awesome items! After you win, then you can go out and chat!



No Time to Bid? Use the BidBuddy Instead!

Maybe you have already committed to a day of fun with family and friends. That’s okay, too! You can still get in on the fun, excitement, and holiday wins by using the BidBuddy to bid on your place for you. If you’re not familiar with how the BidBuddy works, it’s easy! The BidBuddy is simple to learn how to use. Just open up any auction from the main page, and you will see the button to bid now, or the “Book a BidBuddy” button. If you’d like to use the BidBuddy, just input the amount of bids that you want to spend on the auction. The BidBuddy is free to use, so why not let it help you out when you need it? You are able to cancel it or add more bids at any time. If you want to be an auction winner on a holiday when you’re not at your computer, then the BidBuddy is the way to go!

Holiday Trips with Children and DealDash

 Here it is, the end of October! Does your family travel in November and December to visit relatives? If you have small kids even a small weekend trip requires preparation.

November is just a day away, and with November we have Thanksgiving, then of course December is right behind it with all of the holidays that come with it. My family makes at least 3 or 4 small trips in the winter season to visit various relatives, and let me tell you, travelling with small kids can be awful if you aren’t prepared.

Coleman Cooler Combo, Red

First and foremost, you should acquire a cooler that fits comfortably in your car, and fill it with all sorts of snacks and drinks. Even if the trip you’re taking to Grandma’s or Auntie’s is only a couple of hours, the kids will be whining “I’m hunnnnggrrryyy!” at the first fast food place they see. Save your money and your time by preempting the hungries with kid friendly snacks such as grapes, goldfish crackers, pretzels, and juice boxes in your cooler. You can find some nice travel coolers on DealDash in the Hobbies, Toys, Outdoors, and Games section.

Next up in saving your sanity, entertainment! There there are some great products out there such as portable DVD players for the car, and of course MP3 players and tablets. Just make sure that you get some headphones for the kids from DealDash. That way the kids will be occupied with their devices and you can have some peace and quiet. Check the Electronics & Computer section for a variety of headphones and other electronic devices. A word of advice, though – if you have small kids under the age of 12 or so, please don’t let them use earbuds. Earbuds aren’t safe for younger kids who don’t realize that it will hurt their ears to turn up the volume too loud. Please choose over-the-ear styles for younger kids. A lot of the headphones meant for children have a built in volume regulator so the kids can’t turn them up too loudly and damage their hearing. Please check the headphones carefully before you let your kids use them to be sure they are at a safe volume.

Hopefully you and your kids will have a great holiday season visiting your family this year. Check out  DealDash and I’m sure you’ll find something to entertain even the most difficult child. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!


The Early Bird Gets the Good Deal on DealDash

I am similar to most people on DealDash, I think – we all love to shop! And one of the most satisfying shopping experiences that a person can have is to be completely done with all of their Christmas shopping by the end of November.

I was able to do this last year with a little help from DealDash, but this year it’s going to be even easier. I’ll let you guys in on a little secret…Starting Monday August 10th DealDash is running their “Early Christmas Gift Sale” promotion! It runs all week, and includes discounted bids as well as 2x Highest Bidder time!

Since you have a couple of days until this promotion starts maybe you should start thinking about what your friends and family might like for Christmas this year. I have 2 small kids (and 1 on the way!) so I am pretty in tune with what the infant-to-elementary school age is interested in, and I have been doing my research on the best gifts for this year. Here is a quick run-down of what I think are some of the most entertaining things that your kids or grand kids would love to get as a gift:

Baby to Toddler


Babies and toddlers absolutely LOVE stuffed animals- and even better than plain stuffed animals are ones that sing, talk, and make other noises when you press their buttons. However, my daughter has a few of these from her younger days, and they are still cuddly even though they are basically stuffed robots.

VTech Touch and Learn Musical Bee


My daughter is now preschool-aged, and some of her favorite things are Minnie Mouse, her kid’s laptop, and her tablet. She also loves outdoor water toys and dolls that she can dress up, too.

Grade K-3

My son falls into this category, and some of his favorite things are robots, radio-controlled (RC) cars & trucks, and of course his bike! He tells me that Doc McStuffins is popular with the girls in his class.

Grade 4-6

Most of the kids in upper elementary grades are growing out of toys by this age, but I can definitely think of a few things they might enjoy, such as a Remote Helicopter/drone, an iTunes gift card, or if you’re feeling really generous an iPad mini would bring a smile to just about any kid’s face!

Hopefully I have given you a few ideas that got you into the gift-giving spirit. All of these things and way more can be found on DealDash, mostly in the Toys, Kids, & Baby section. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
